Reference

Western Meadowlark in New Jersey.-On April 28, 1940, with Miss Miriam Minton of Metuchen, I made an early-morning trip to the region south of South Plainfield, New Jersey, in order to take a census of the Upland Plovers that are usually to be found there. While driving slowly along a country road and listening carefully for the notes of the plover, my attention was called to a beautiful and very familiar song. I said at once to my companion, who is an enthusiastic bird
student, "That is the song of the Western Meadowlarkl" Presently our binoculars revealed the bird (Sturnella neglecta) sitting on a fence post about one hundred yards distant. We slowly approached the bird until we were within fifty yard so of it.

During this time it had poured forth its complete song a number of times. We watched it until it flew to a distant field. As I am very well acquainted with this bird in the West and have spent many hours listening to its gorgeous songs, including the flight song, there is not a possible doubt as to correct identification.

On May I, 1940, I made another trip to this locality hoping to hear the bird again. The fields were searched for some distance in every direction during the two and one-half hours I was there, but there was no trace of our western visitor.

I spent many other mornings in May in this section of the country but without result, so I conclude the bird had wandered farther afield. I am unable to find a single authentic record of this bird's appearances o far east.–JoHN T . S. HUNN,

Two beautiful old cedars
Two tall cedars, almost branched to the ground were a verdant green and laden with cones.

The greenery was much admired and we requested permission by Mr. Fahrenholtz if we could come in December and take cuttings. He readily agreed.
